I've been carrying my P-3at daily for the last 6 weeks. When I work around the house it's with me. Dirty, dusty work then shoot it 20-30 rounds (Using various ammo) back in the pocket (in a nemesis). More dust, lint etc. shoot it some more a week later. Back in the pocket, I almost felt sorry for it but this was a test. See all the lint building up on the back of the hammer, shoot it some more, and back in the pocket, with a M+P 9C for backup because I do know if I can trust it at this point. Finally, after about 150 rounds over 6 weeks time (and lots of dirt) I just had to clean it.
Since the trip back to the factory even without a fluf/buff it is working flawlessly. :) :)

Glad to hear your little guy is performing well for you.

The only time mine has ever had a problem was after carrying it around for about 3 months without cleaning it. I had two failures to extract in two magazines. It was clean (aside from lint), but was bone dry. Now I clean it every two weeks, whether I have shot it or not. So far I've had zero problems.

i don't know why at times there's such a stink,this really is a great carry piece and when taken care of it performs flawlessly.....
I think:

1) because a very few of them do have some issues; and
2) people want the gun to work without doing their part.

My 3AT has worked so well that I didn't have to do anything for break in. I finally did polish the feed ramp because I felt guilty for having my gun work so well while others were having problems. It took me about 10 seconds with a Dremel tool and some polishing compound. I have about 250 rounds of various types/brands through mine with zero problems. That's correct. Zero!

I love my KelTec and seldom leave home without it.

Oh wait, I did file down the magazine release due to it releasing in my back pocket holster. That isn't really a defect but I fixed it so the mag stays in place until I want it to release.
